Elite 11: A ranking of our top 11 teams after Week 6

Each week, we’re scouring the Mid-Penn, Lancaster-Lebanon, York, and Berks conferences to determine the top 11 teams in the area regardless of classification. Take a look at which teams made the cut after Week 6. Disagree, let us know on Twitter (@4thdownmag) and Facebook.

11. Steel-High5-010
Rebounded offensively after a sputtering first half against Middletown. And don’t forget about that undervalued, at times, defense that pitched a shutout.
10. Wyomissing6-011
Not only beat Southern Columbia, but beat the Tigers by three touchdowns. Looking more and more like an elite squad at the Class 3A level.
9. Cedar Cliff5-19
Three straight wins since getting subdued by No. 5 CD East in Week 3. Time to step back into the firepit with No. 4 Bishop McDevitt on deck.
8.Exeter Township4-28
Eagles had a controlled scrimmage against winless Muhlenberg, where they scored 77 points, to get ready for Governor Mifflin this week.
7. Central Dauphin3-1NR
Rams needed a timeout from the rankings while they were in COVID-19 pause mode. CD is 2-0 since restarting, has scored 92 points and looks ready to throw its hat in the ring.
6. Hempfield4-27
Won its third in a row, but unlike the previous two this one was all smooth sailing against McCaskey. Black Knights are developing into a contender.
5. CD East5-15
Four straight games the Panthers defense has held the opposition to 13 or fewer points. Dare I say CD East is a throwback built on physical defense and a pounding running game.
4. Bishop McDevitt4-14
Another week … and another blowout for the Crusaders, who continue to put up video game numbers on offense. Much bigger test this week with No. 9 Cedar Cliff on deck.
3. Harrisburg5-13
Fourth long bus trip and another road victory for the Cougars. Offense came alive in the second half, but that defense is getting more teeth and pitched a shutout in Altoona.
2. Central York5-02
Second consecutive week scoring 60 or more points for the Panthers. They play unbeaten Spring Grove this week, and I’m not sure CY doesn’t score 50 or more again.
1. Governor Mifflin5-01
Scheduled game with Reading was canceled because of COVID-19 concerns, and to the surprise of nobody the Mustangs were not able to find an opponent to fill the spot. Fun statistic … star RB Nick Singleton has 21 touchdowns in 20 quarters of action this season.
